Just wanted to relay the experience of working some basic Jinn Magick since it’s not a hot topic around here. I’ll provide a few key differentiators between what we normally see around here and the approach I chose.
So I finally had the opportunity to launch a spell I have been eager to execute in a while. After transcribing the ritual into my notebook, I ran through one of the spells in Practical Jinn Magick by Corwin Hargrove. This time I really wanted to vibrate the names, so had to wait for the perfect time when I was alone. It’s always awesome when you can verbalize and vibrate nice and loud.
The ritual setup is simple. Just a black candle in a pitch black environment, a few sets of divine names to vibrate, and a petition.
It winds up being candle magick, yes, but has a certain depth you can chew on.
What differentiates this type of magick from the candle magick in EA’s books and standard sigil gazing is that the effects of each of the spells is “inferred” based on the Jinn names you provide to the Jinn King. You have little control over what the Jinn will do and you command nobody.
So say you pick the “financial ruin” spell. You petition the particular king by vibrating the name, then making your petition. The difference here is you follow it up with the names of 3 chosen Jinn whom have compatible effects. The King will choose, you do not.
Another aspect of the Jinn rituals in Hargrove’s book is that you must invoke within you the feelings involved in NOT getting your desire. Like how much it sucks to be hungry, or suffering from a creative block , etc.
Basically you show the Jinn what’s it’s like to feel not having what you desire, then you make your petition and the King chooses which Jinn will help.
A quick summary of the Jinn Magick rituals in Corwin Hargrove’s book is as follows:
(Obviously I’m not plagiarizing his stuff here, but if it whets your appetite, then I’m sure he would enjoy an extra sale. It’s a cheap paperback)
- Darken the room
- Meditate on El for a few minutes. El as a creative light force of the universe.
- Light candle
- Call a set of names from book (always the same)
- Feel what’s it’s like to NOT have your wish. Show the Jinn. Impart your emotion
- Call another set of names from book (always the same)
- Call Archangels (always same)
- Call Elders (always same)
- Call the King (changes depending on ritual)
- Make petition
- Call three compatible Jinn (suggestions, changes depending on ritual)
- Stare at candle , the heart of the Jinn
Bottom line, is that the structure is easy to remember. The divine names can be memorized in time since they don’t change.
All in all, I personally enjoy it. I have no issues with divine names and archangels. Using names that have been around for hundreds if not thousands of years helps with legitimacy.
